4J Studios returned from holiday break Monday and gave a quick update on what its plans are for Minecraft on the PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One for the new year.

"Happy New Year everyone! We're now back at work - looks like we have some nasty PS3 issues to fix, then on to TU14 and other platforms," the developer wrote on Twitter.

Indeed there are still some nasty Minecraft: PS3 Edition issues that have lingered since the 1.02 patch was released in December just a few days before Christmas. The most troubling is the corrupt saved game bug which is ruining the experience of many who purchased the open-world sandbox game on the Playstation 3. Until a patch is released, we suggest taking these steps to avoid your world save from being corrupted. It's not 100 percent fool proof but it reduces the risk greatly.

Meanwhile, Xbox 360 Edition owners have been waiting for TU14 anxiously since TU13 was released in early October. Work on porting Minecraft to the PS3, PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita has caused the next major update to be pushed to the side but fans will be happy to hear that work is being done on the next update.

There's still no release window on the PS4 and Xbox One releases so it's best not to speculate on when the next-gen version of Minecraft will be released. The best guess is that it will be a late winter or spring release.
